Would there be a way to - at least - improve those things: I just thought 
about the following thing (tell me if that is stupid or not feasible at 
- store the unix uid when running clog
- set the uid of files to that uid later

Then, at least, the output of `ls` would make some sense... 

I still have another very different question: Will the new clog still allow 
login using tokens stored in some file for working in disconnected mode? If 
so, would it be possible to extend the pam_kcoda module to use locally stored 
tokens, if in disconnected mode (maybe some option %h/coda_token to tell the 
module to look for the file coda_token in the user's home)?

Does `hoard` allow adding entire directories to the cache? If so, are newly 
created files in within these directories cached too?

Thanks for your answers,
